Summary
Causation is at once familiar and mysterious - we can detect its presence in the world, but we cannot agree on the metaphysics of the causal relation. L.A. Paul and Ned Hall guide the reader through the most important philosophical treatments of causation, and develop a broad and sophisticated understanding of the issues under debate
